At a fiesta, or just because it’s Wednesday, margaritas are a guaranteed crowd-pleasing drink.
An instant celebration, this refreshing cocktail of tequila, orange liqueur (such as Triple sec), and fresh lime juice is typically served in a festive glass with a salted rim.
What you’ll love: We put a lady-like twist on the classic Mexican cocktail to celebrate woman’s month.
Rub lemon/lime wedges around the glass rim. Place some salt on a plate and evenly dip the rim into the salt.
Into a medium pitcher add lemonade, cranberry juice, lemon/lime juice, triple sec and tequila. Stir to combine. Add ice to each glass and pour the margarita mix into the glasses.
Garnish each glass with lemon/lime slices. Serve immediately.
Raise your margaritas to the roof! Here’s how:
Squeeze those limes or lemons.
The difference between bottled and fresh is obvious.
Use a good quality tequila and orange liqueur.
Try using flaky sea salt instead of table salt or kosher salt. The salt matters!
Chill the margarita glasses for 30 minutes before serving. It makes rimming the glasses much easier. And keeps your drink cool.
Add fresh fruit. Lime or lemon slices are always good, of course. But sliced strawberry or blueberries are a new twist.
Shake your margaritas, don’t stir. Shaking creates the tiny bubbles that make a margarita cloudy, frothy and generally awesome in appearance.
Ice matters. Look for big cubes.
